A house. Some stuff you just can’t do sight unseen (and isn’t returnable) But a few years ago during the oil boom that was actually happening in our city.

CLOTHES.  I ALWAYS do it and I ALWAYS return them. :/  Just sent something back today and I need to stop wasting money on shipping!

I ALWAYS buy shoes online tho, but it’s because I’ve found a brand I love and always fits me, I feel your pain OP.

I’m always hesitant to buy shoes and clothes online unless I know the brand. I know how VS bras fit me, so I buy them on clearance when I can and it’s been perfect every time. I get nervous buying anything online that I’ve never seen in person.

Haha, I like the house one! I would say my wedding dress and probably undergarments…unless it’s from a chain place (aka VS).

Bras.  I absolutely have to try them on.

I wouldn’t buy anything that I have to pay to return/exchange.  I buy clothes and shoes online all the time (it’s actually my primary method of shopping because I get the best deals this way), but only from companies where I can send back for free (like Zappos) or return to a brick and mortar store near where I live (like Gap, J. Crew, etc.).

Wedding flowers.

So risky. Some people have fabulous experiences and some have miserable. Regardless you don’t have time to return them before the day.

I don’t actually buy online very often.  I only bother with doing so if I can’t find the thing in person somewhere. I prefer to not have to pay shipping on things, and then wait for it to come in. I would probably never buy clothes online. All designers have different sizing charts, plus something that looks cute on the hanger or in the pic may not be a right fit for my body, hair style/colour, personal preferences, etc.

only buy things online that have a “history” with me (makeup, certain brands, etc) especially if I can get a better price online.

Online shopping just doesn’t have the thrill as doing it in person! I return more than I keep.

A house, a wedding dress, but the big thing for me:

SHOES! I have really narrow feet and I have a really difficult time finding shoes when I shop in stores, let alone online!

Jeans. I own so many pairs, and finding the perfect jeans means trying on alot of pairs. A size in one brand, may not be the same with the next. I purchased a pair of jeans online a few years ago and it was such a horrible fit. I purchase tons of stuff online, but wont make that mistake again lol.
